State pension set to rise next year but 520,000 people will miss out – are you one?

John Duffy, chair of the International Consortium of British Pensioners, previously touched upon how the so-called frozen pensioners might be able to thaw their sum.

He told the Mail: “Quite astonishingly, a frozen state pensioner will find their UK state pension thawed if they return to the UK, even if only for a short period.

“Indeed, the pension is unfrozen during any visit to a list of unfrozen countries, not just the UK.”

Pensioners will only need to inform the DWP of their arrival and departure dates for this change to be reflected.
